Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

Sometimes I struggle with being down, but since the boy came, each year seems better than the last.

My boys are currently in the living room playing “king of the skateboard.” I’m thinking there won’t be any Mensa invites anytime soon... :lol:
Did someone say skateboard???? Practicing kickflips or shuvits?

This morning I'm off to see Ultrasound Boy and Vascular Girl for a yearly check up to see how the ol' carotid stent is doing.

King of the Skateboard brings back fond memories of stick wrestling when I was a kid. My brother and I would start in the living room, each of us with one hand on a four-foot staff. First one with sole possession of the staff on my bed (at the other end of the house) was the winner. This was NOT a game we played when our parents were home.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I applied for a job last June that I just heard back on two days ago. I didn’t get it.

Chicken from Raising Cane, with their sauce, plus 2 slices of pecan pie from Rao's, had me eating Tums last night. My grandson was supposed to come by at 4 to pick up his dog for a duck hunt, but he overslept and texted at 5:30, asking if I could drop the dog off at the boat ramp at 6:15. I was on my way there at 6 when he texted to say he was just going to sleep in today, and hunt tmrw. I went on to McDonald's for some breakfast, and just got home. It's going on 7:30 and I've been up for 4 hrs now.

Taking a mental health day off work.

Going to look at a second hand truck tool box at noon. Polished aluminum UWS box a guy bought a few weeks ago and doesn't like the look on his new truck. He never even bolted it down. News shows a yuge wreck on the interstate between here and there. Two semis and a car. No injuries. All lanes, all directions closed until this afternoon. Expect this will add 20-30 minutes to what should have been a 40 minute drive.

Supposed to be near 50 today. Maybe I'll clean the garage. Probably not.
